The Rapture theory……Not biblical

To believe the rapture theory is to believe a lie,for the message that God will cause His people to be taken out of the earth before the tribulation is just not scriptural. The main support of this theory is taken from 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 that explains when Jesus returns and brings with Him former saints and then we who are alive at His coming will meet them in the clouds,and so shall we ever be with the Lord. This passage speaks of the final return of Christ and not a pre visit from Him before He really returns forever. Verse 16 clues us in that this is the second and FINAL return of the Lord as it says โ€œFor the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,and with the trump of God:and the dead in Christ shall rise firstโ€. The trump spoken of here is the seventh trump we read of in the book of revelation when the seventh angel sounds before the return of Christ!(Revelation 11:15) 15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Although it would be wonderful to just be taken away before the tribulation,God is doing nothing of the sort! He did not fill His people with the power of the Holy Spirit and tell them to put on His whole armour if He was going to remove them for a battle they are armed to endure!(Ephesians 6:10-17).

Why would a loving God send His Son to die and return three times? once at the resurrection,then again for a rapture and return again as His final return?There is not one thread of truth that our Lord returns to the earth three times. Only twice is recorded in scripture. The first being after His death at the resurrection and then returns again with power as Lord of Lords and King of Kings…..PERIOD!

In Matthew 24 we see Jesus’ disciples ask Him how will it be before His return? and there is not one mention He will be coming to take anyone away. He does however explain and give a clear picture to His disciples how it will look before His return including His people WHO ARE HERE will be offended,delivered up to be afflicted and even be killed. They will betray one another,iniquity will abound and the love of many will grow cold. We will be hated for His name sake…….. BUT HE THAT SHALL ENDURE UNTO THE END,THE SAME SHALL BE SAVED.

The rapture theory comforts those who do not want to face any persecution or anything unpleasant,yet true christians know that they are appointed to suffer tribulations for their Lord and it is for our glory that we endure for our faith(Ephesians 3:13) 13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. We find these true and faithful servants WHO WENT THROUGH THE TRIBULATION in the book of revelation stating they were given white robes (Revelation 7:13,14).

  1. Amen sister!

    Why would anyone think that God’s elect won’t suffer cruel persecution and tribulation?

    He has never spared His children such suffering. (Go ask Paul, Steven, or John the Baptist).

    I do see a rapture in scripture, but a one-time rapture for judgement, at the return of Christ.

    Scripture doesn’t teach dispensationalism’s dual rapture theory where Gentile elect get to watch the tribulation from the heavenly grandstands, and then Christ will return for a second rapture of converted Jews.

    Thank you for sharing this thought provoking article for us to read.
